NEW YORK - SNY will premiere an exclusive, one-hour documentary titled "UConn Spring Football All Access" on Thursday, May 16 at 9:30 p.m. This in-depth show lifts the curtain on this UConn's football program as SNY's cameras followed the team and coaches on and off the field during the final weekend of spring practice - allowing viewers to get a glimpse of what it is like to be a part of the Huskies' football program.
The show will also air on Friday, May 17 at 6:00 p.m., Monday, May 20 at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, May 25 at 6:00 p.m., Sunday, May 26 at 5:00 p.m. and Monday, May 27 (Memorial Day) at 3:00 p.m.
The documentary is produced in a similar fashion to SNY's Huskies All-Access program - which followed the UConn women's basketball team during the intense first week of practice as they prepared for their 2012-13 championship season.
"UConn Spring Football All Access" delivers viewers the ultimate insider's perspective as this behind-the-scenes documentary brings fans into the closed-door coaches meetings - providing an intimate look at head coach Paul Pasqualoni and his coaching staff. The show features detailed footage from team and positional meetings to the UConn coaches discussing player recruitment, player development and coaching techniques in order to get the team properly prepared for the season.
SNY's camera's also followed several players - who were wired for sound - around campus to give fans a glimpse into a typical day-in-a-life of the student-athlete. "UConn Spring Football All Access" will also showcase team practices, player weight-room sessions and even team meals to provide a comprehensive, all-access look at the program leading up to UConn's annual Blue-White Spring Football Game.
"I have seen an advance version of this documentary and I want to let all sports fans know how exciting I think this show will be for them to watch," said Pasqualoni. "Everyone who views it, especially Husky fans, will appreciate all the hard work that our players and coaching staff put into preparation during spring practice. It also highlights everything that is offered at UConn academically and how beautiful our campus is."
